4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber ours russet color with a persistant white head. Balanced hop/malt aroma that is consistent to the finish on the palate. Fruity, caramel malt backbone. Overall, another well-balanced winner from Lagunitas.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taste 12/8 Bottle. Looks: Clear dark brown color. Aroma:Malty, nutty and wood. Taste: While the aroma is muted dark tones, the taste is vibrant. Very malty red with a nice smooth bitterness. Alcohol presence is mild. A nice yeasty flavor that I like. It balances the malt well. I like it above the current 3.71/94 percentile.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours deep dark copper, finger of off-white head and nice lacing. Basically, this is the same exact beer as Ithaca Cascazilla, just a little pricier. In fact, if you bottled this in the Cascazilla bottles, nobody would know the difference. Check that- Ithacans would probably notice that Cascazilla has a bit more... ZING to it. Pretty good beer though...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. botle pours a ruby red color with hints of amber and brown. Huge tan head on the pour with a sugar coating of lace. The scent was of hops, citrus and some light yeasty notes. A great taste with hops dominating over malt, but not too agressively. A very spicey, piney after taste and good finish. Highly recommended ASA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bomber. Pours a deep ruby red with small off-white head. Light floral nose followed up by a biting citrus hop flavor with lots of bitter, despite the 40 IBU rating.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer smelled very hoppy yet the taste was mostly a thick yet smooth malt. Nice heavy palate with a sizeable head. Hints of caramel and slightly boozy.

purchased a sixer today, never had it before
huge head, I meant huge, forms a nice crown in the middle of the beer, smells hoppy, sweet, and fruity.
Very hoppy and bitter beer, but heavy with malt as well, tastes of the typical lagunitas hoppy beer, which is good, but adding that heavy red ale quality to it that gives it a real backbone. Nice, definitely above avg. and worth trying. Well done and all the flavors blend together well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark red into Guinness pint glass. Spicy nose with a huge musty malt profile. It is a bit complex in the nose… I get some fruity and herbal notes. The flavor has that spicy traditional stong hop presence. Sweet with roasted and bread notes. Its a nice blend of complex flavors. Will buy again.
